Re:

Thanks for the roundup, Nick, as always. Warbands: Bushido looks promising, especially with its (surprising) absence of IAP. The lack of a campaign is the only thing keeping me from jumping on this right now. Are the cards and fighters that you acquire with the in-game currency randomized, or do yo...

Re:

One release some folks around here might be interested in is Warbands: Bushido, a miniature strategy board game of some sort. Only saw screenshots but looks fine to me. Regarding iron Marines: will you review it? TAs review is too much centered around IAP justification and PG gave it 9/10 which rea...

Re:

I am a little confused about the new direction of this site. It sounded like the plan was to stop covering free games overall and also stick to very specific genres, especially given the one post a day problem. Here we have an interview about a free game. Meanwhile, adventure RPGs and the like are ...

Re: News by Numbers -- September 11th 2017

CMS might have goofed, I checked it before it went live and I'm pretty sure I would have noticed a sentence cutting off, but then yesterday was a weird day. The network we share got hacked or something so it caused all kinds of disruptions.

Fixed now, anyway.

Re: Out Now: Eight-Minute Edition

I almost had the chance to play the physical version over the weekend, but we ran out of time to take it for a spin. Interested in seeing what it's like though, hopefully our review will be up by the end of the week.

Re: Review: Darkest Dungeon

Ah sorry Snarvid, I didn't mean to appear to be debating in bad faith. I guess It's more that the things you're specifically concerned about are not things that I'm concerned about, so I don't tend to worry about them and haven't really developed the 'language', if you will, to debate on those terms...

Re:

Anyone here that's been playing the new HS expansion care to offer an assessment? It's somewhat hard to find unbiased reviews of it on any HS sites.... I was going to get Matt to do another "Hot Take" but the news of the impending Druid nerf kind of delayed that until we can see how the m...

Re: Review: Darkest Dungeon

(Also, 4.5 appears not to be an option in this 5 star system.) I'm not actually against the principle of a half-star system here, but it wasn't included in the current version of PT (and I wasn't part of those design decisions). Does anyone remember if it was ever a feature on PT in the past? Not s...

Re:

Great review. No doubt my wallet will be a fiver lighter by the end of the week! I notice this was reviewed on an iPhone 5, so I'm wondering if the 'cannot zoom out to reveal the entire world map' annoyance is lesser so on a larger (tablet) device? I'm guessing the tablet version shows more lay-of-...

Re: Review: Darkest Dungeon

This, Strike Team Hydra, and Galaxy of Pen and Paper are all 4 star games according to this site. I like Strike Team Hydra plenty well and really appreciate how accessible its developer is, but putting it on the same tier with Darkest Dungeon shows a failure of PT to quantify real differences betwe...
